Today is day 365 on 365 Cards!!! I can't believe it came so fast.... oh wait, it's just because I've only been with them for 3 weeks!!! hahahahaaha oh well... anyways, it was a super sketchy Sunday and it's a very clean sketch, simple, and those of you who know me, know that I don't do so well with that. I'm better when I can put a whole bunch of stuff on my card... but here's my crack at it anyways. Hope you enjoy! Can't wait for the next 365! woot woot!Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T

Today at 365 cards is the last day of scraplifting style from the DT. It has been fun. I must confess that this has been a super busy day for me, baking cakes and cookies and making trifles, but I did manage to find the time to get the card done. Although I didn't follow Vicky's style quite as closely as I followed the others, I still think this card fits. Here's Vicky's card:
She is described as sharp and clean and always stamping on a white background.
My colors are not quite "soft" like hers, but I lifter her idea of stamping on white and coloring it to match the background, I also used her layering idea of using the same colors in the pic as in the layers. I'm using this as a thank you card for the girl who ordered the cake that I made today. Well, lots of work left to do, not to mention the mountain of laundry!!! ugh..... I just wanna go to bed..... night night!

So, mine are not exactly cards, but I did use the 3D element that Amy suggested. PINWHEELS!!!!! How fun are these??? and they actually work! They were fun to make and the little boxes are full of springtime goodies. I'm going to give them to my mom since she was kind enough to have Evan over for a sleep over last night! Nana's are the best! hahahaha Thanks Amy for the inspiration!

Here's my card for today's' challenge at 365 cards. Again today it was about CASE-ing someones' style. Kristie has a very simple, yet modern style. I know that pink and green and brown are very "in" colors right now, so I went with that, other than the colors, you can see I really did CASE her style, pretty much 100%!! ha ha ha Thanks Kristie for a great "thank you" card idea, one can NEVER have enough of those... now it's off to the gym, in the snow!!!!!

One more post for today.... I just HAD to share this with you all... I made Evan a water bottle with a train on it! Needless to say; he was super happy! He carries it around with him and tells me "momma don't touch" whenever I come near it! hahahah who know that one stamp set could make a little guy so happy(ahhh the life of a 3 year old)? ha ha ha we'll find more things to make with it I'm sure! (so far it's been a watter bottle, lots of cards, a puzzle and a cake) Good night all, we'll see what tomorrow brings.Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T

I decided I wanted to go with the 50"s era, and I love the old coffee posters! So.... after an hour or so of finding appropriate ones on the Internet, this is what I came up with... I loved how Gloria had her pictures overlapping one another and all at angels, so I took that element from her. Additionally I liked how she grouped her brads in 3"s.... so I scraplifted that too....
I sure hope that I get well soon, I'm pretty sure that this virus I have has totally messed with my card-making prowess..... ho huh... cough, cough, I think I better go get my millionth cup of hot tea doused with honey. someday I'll be normal... wait.... strike that! ;) ha ha ha!

Super Sketchy Sunday from 365 cards is here, and it's a doozie! ha ha ha I was feeling in the springtime mood since it's all sunny outside, and I got this super cute stamp in the $1 bin at Mike's yesterday. So here's what came of it.... I just used scraps of bright colors and layered them in the arrangement indicated by the sketch. Plain, simple, and no fuss. I HAD to add the flowers because the card seemed....empty. :( But I think they gave it the right amount of cheer. Anyway, my little guy is begging me to "mommy get up" so I guess my card making time is over today.... I still have to do that Sprinkles challenge too.... I think it's going to have to be "springy" too...hummmm......*scratches noggin*.... we'll see. TTFN!

And, here's my take on it! I'm still not feeling up to par yet, so I think I may be a little off the mark, but it goes, and I had a second opinion (thanks Pal) to re-assure me that it fit the sketch. So, I guess I'm golden! hahaha I sure hope this bug leaves my family soon, it's sunny outside and I wanna go play! See ya all tomorrow.

So. this is my take on Amy's Sketch over at 365 cards today! I embossed the "Medallion" stamp from SU with "Blue tinsel" from Stampendous. I love embossing on black, just makes it shimmer all that much more! Thanks for looking! Now, I'm still not feeling well, so it's off to bed for me, maybe I can finally get in a nap....Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T
